Whipped Yogurt with Lime and Fruit

Serves 4.


    Whipped Yogurt with Lime and Fruit

    Lime, vanilla, and soothing honey turn Greek yogurt into a special occasion-worthy dessert. This treat is akin to a fruit-topped no-bake cheesecake, but comes together so much faster.


    Beauty fruit focus: Lime, kiwi, mango, blueberry, and cherry

    Power fruits

    Explore a wide range of beautifying fruits to top your dessert including vitamin C-packed kiwis and mangos, crunchy pomegranate seeds, ripe blueberries, and fibre-rich raspberries. Anything tender with a hint of acidity will work well with the creamy whipped yogurt.
